Well, since this last game got out of hand, I turned it off with about eight minutes left to focus on a different project. The tourney really showed some weaknesses in this team that I think are displayed very distinctly in the play of Morgan and Horford both. Both got in foul trouble this weekend in every game which left us vulnerable underneath the basket.
I compiled and compared the statistics of the two-headed monster Horgan Morford and averaged their wins and losses.
Their impact may not be overtly present in rebounding and fouls per game, but it is most definitely evident in their scoring. Especially in games like today and the Indiana game in February where the offense felt stagnant and ball movement was at a minimum, Morford does not have a strong influence. A lot of this is due to Nik's inability to drive and dish as well.
With all of the talk about Nik, Caris, and GR3's importances, I just thought it would be something to think about and remember that this is indeed a team that needs to operate in just about every aspect in order to excel.
Edit: Sorry if the pic is hard to read.
